‘Despicable’ Mitcham predator jailed

A 74-year-old predator who exploited a position of trust to sexually abuse three young children in Mitcham was jailed for nearly nine years on Monday (July 16).

Meekumar Issory, from Mitcham, pleaded guilty at Kingston Crown Court on April 5 to a range of offences committed against three female victims under the age of 13.

He was jailed for eight years and nine months after confessing to digital penetration, sexual assault by touching, causing a child to watch pornography, exposure and possession of indecent images.

Issory “abused his position of trust” in order to sexually abuse the three young children, all of whom were known to him, a spokesman for Metropolitan Police said.

The 74-year-old was jailed on Monday after being arrested on November 12 last year.

He was also added to the sex offenders register and issued with sexual harm prevention order, both for indefinite periods of time.
